2016 Audi A5 OVERVIEW

The coupe version of Audi's popular A4 sedan, the A5 combines luxury and style with a touch of sport. While it's not as spacious as the brand's four-door compacts, A5 retains many of their practical virtues, including fine efficiency and a usable trunk.

What's New for 2016

All models now come with the sporty "S line" exterior treatment. Convertibles can get a new acoustic top in red.

Choosing Your Audi A5

Available as a four-passenger coupe or soft-top convertible, the A5 carries a 2-liter four-cylinder engine good for 220 horsepower. The coupe comes standard with all-wheel drive and your choice of a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission. The convertible starts out with front-wheel drive and a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The optional all-wheel drive system comes only with the eight-speed automatic. Expect to pay about $6,500 more for the convertible.

Both body styles are available in three trim levels:


Carries a leather interior with power front seats, tri-zone climate control, Bluetooth phone and a 10-speaker sound system with satellite radio. The coupe gets a sunroof, while the convertible has a power top and wind deflector. Heated seats and a navigation system are available as standalone options.

Premium Plus

Gets the Premium's options as standard, plus keyless ignition, driver memory functions, and heated auto-dimming exterior mirrors. The available Technology package ($3,150) adds enhanced web-based navigation, a rearview camera, parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, and a 14-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system. The $1,000 Sport package gets you front sport seats, a sport-tuned suspension, and adjustable driving settings. For about $500 more, you can upgrade to the Sport Plus, which tacks on a flat-bottom steering wheel, gloss black exterior accents, and summer performance tires on 19-inch titanium-finish wheels.


Carries the Technology package as standard, plus adaptive headlamps. The Sport and Sport Plus packages continue as options. Exclusive to the Prestige is the $3,000 Driver Assist package, which adds adaptive cruise control, a color information display, and dynamic-assist steering.

CarsDirect Tip

We recommend starting at the Premium Plus trim level, which makes the A5 feel like a complete luxury car. From there, the Sport package is the worthiest add-on in our view, providing sports car-like handling with hardly any loss in ride comfort.
